To better serve you, we would like to discuss your specific requirement, Please Contact Us for a quote.

  Undoped YVO4 is an excellent newly developed birefringence optical crystal .

  • It has very good transmission in a wide wavelength range from visible to infrared.
  • It has large index of refractivity and birefringence difference.
  • Compared with other important birefringence crystals, YVO4 has higher. hardness, better fabrication property, water insoluble and man-made than calcite (CaCO3 single crystal). 
  • Easier to get large, high quality crystal and lower cost than rutile (TiO2 single crystal). 

Those outstanding properties make YVO4 very important birefringence optical material and widely used in opto-electronic research, development and industry. For example, the optical communication system needs a huge quantity devices of undoped YVO4, such as fible optical isolators, circulators, beam displacers, Glan polarizers and other polarizing devices.
